Who I Am
Originally from Kamloops BC, I moved to Vancouver Island in 2016 to pursue my passion for teaching and adventure. The island lifestyle seamed to be better suited for me and my interests as well as offered an amazing education establishment where I could study. Being surrounded by beaches, mountains, forests, and kind people is the fairy tale life that I get to live every day. I have never woken up unhappy about my decision to move to such a beautiful place.
Within my friend group I am loud and love to express myself in many different ways. We enjoy putting down technology and experiencing the moments we have together face to face rather than through a screen. Wether we have chosen to stay in and play board games or wake up early to climb a mountain, it is never a dull moment when we are together.
I believe it is important to always be true to yourself and who you are as a person and hope to be able to teach this mindset to my future students. Being kind to and accepting of others is a very simple task which many people struggle with. It is important to create a space where young minds are able to grow to respect their peers differences and understand that these variations in characteristics are how people create their own identities.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” -Albert Einstein
